Indian-inspired coconut curry

Today, I’m sharing a v special recipe on my blog. A few weeks ago, my Dadi (grandmother) taught me how to make one of her dishes. This woman is an amazing cook – anyone in my family knows this. (: This particular dish of her’s is my all-time favorite. Here’s my version of an Indian-inspired coconut curry. Flavorful, healthy, gluten-free, wholesome ingredients, and supes yummy.  

Ingredients (serves 6-ish)

for the curry…

  • 1lb chicken thighs, cleaned and cut into medium-sized cubes
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, large
  • 3 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup green chili, diced & canned
  • 1 tomato, large
  • 3 tbsp salsa
  • 1 handful cilantro 
  • 1 tbsp lemon 
  • 1/4 tsp tumeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander 
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 can coconut cream
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt 

other ingredients…

  • rice or naan or anything else you wanna eat your curry with (:

Method

  1. In a medium/large pot, soak onions in olive oil for 10 mins. 
  2. Heat pot on stove at medium/high, until onions are soft. 
  3. Add chicken, garlic, and green chili. Cook on high until most of the liquid evaporates. 
  4. Add chopped tomato, salsa, half of the cilantro, lemon, tumeric, coriander, salt. Cook until paste/oil consistency. 
  5. Add coconut cream, yogurt, and the rest of the cilantro. Add a splash of water to loosen the curry. Stir consistently on medium. Chicken should fall apart easily. Oh and chicken shouldn’t be raw. Obvs.  

Enjoy! xo.
